AARON CARTER | Manchester Academy 3 | Weds 14 Jan

Sure, most of Aaron Carter's original fan base (predominantly teenage girls) of the early noughties have grown up now but his return to the stage is still expected to draw a large turn-out. Best known for his squeaky-clean pop hits I want Candy and Aaron's Party, the younger brother of Backstreet Boy's Nick Carter will showcase some new stuff. We suspect it's really , really good stuff too...
